When Obama was listed in Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, His father registered his son as “Muslim”.

President Barack Obama went to a Roman Catholic School as a young boy.  The enrollment document at Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen, born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu. Obama’s Muslim step-father listed the boy’s religion as “Islam” .

Obama’s staff is once again battling claims he is a Muslim after his former grade school in Indonesia showed his transcripts to foreign media which listed his religion as “Islam.”

The claim that Barack Hussein Obama was raised as a Muslim, is not new. Already in 2007, several American bloggers displayed the true identity of Obama.

I’m not making any charges or implying any judgement here, just putting up this AP Photo by Tatan Syuflana, along with the commentary from a post at Free Republic:

Let’s just call this “food for thought.” and of “possible interest.”

Barack Obama was enrolled with the different name "Barry", and his religion is stated as "Islam". When and how Obama became a Christian is still a mystery.

The claim of the Muslim identity and childhood of the American president, was disclosed by Kim Baker in the Chicago Tribune on March 25 2007:

About Obama’s step-father, Lolo Soetoro and his religiosity, Barker writes:

In their first neighborhood, Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers, a few neighbors said. But Soetoro usually was too busy working, first for the Indonesian army and later for a Western oil company. “Sometimes Lolo went to the mosque to pray, but he rarely socialized with people,” said Fermina Katarina Sinaga, Obama’s 3rd-grade teacher at the Catholic school, who lived near the family. “Rarely, Barry [a nickname for Barack] went to the mosque with Lolo.”

Msnbc.com reported in 2007, that Obama was attending a School of all faiths, a school ran by Roman Catholics.

Obama, who was born in Hawaii, moved to Indonesia at age 6 to live with his mother and stepfather, attending schools in the country until age 10, when he returned to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents.
“The allegations are completely baseless,” said Akmad Solichin, the vice principal at SDN Menteng 1, who added, “Yes, most of our students are Muslim, but there are Christians as well. Everyone’s welcome here … it’s a public school.”

A spokesman for Indonesia’s Ministry of Religious Affairs said claims that Obama studied at an Islamic school are groundless.

“SDN Menteng 1 is a public primary school that is open to people of all faiths,” said the spokesman, Sutopo, who goes by only one name.

“Moreover, he studied earlier at Fransiskus Assisi, which is clearly a Catholic school.”

Obama communications director Robert Gibbs gives a different explanation:

“Senator Obama has never been a Muslim,” Gibbs said. “As a six-year-old in Catholic school, he studied the catechism.”
